Re: Summit 2007/2008 accountability

I'm going to a concert next week. I will be sure to ask the road manager exactly where my ticket money is going. And maybe every other event that I ever pay to go to from now on. How many actually paid & came to this event because of where their money was going? I'd venture to say not many. Like most, we come for the experience & adventure. I would also venture to say that few of the people on this thread have ever put on any type of event besides a bbq in their back yard. Until you do, you have NO idea the time, effort & funding that it takes to put on any type of event. I on the othe hand do...& I say great job to all involved! Tim, Seth & Ty if you all put every dime into your own pocket, I would say well deserved compensation for many huge headaches that you & your families have endured in order to put on a great event for others!

Re: Summit 2007/2008 accountability

This forum and the forum summit, is much like certain restaurants, if you like the service and the food enjoy it.

You will probably be much happier NOT poking around in the kitchen....
Does this look like a cat bone to you?

A good day, is a day that ends with a St. Bernardus ABT 12

just a reminder that concerts are put on by for-profit ripoff artists like Ticketmaster. The Summit is a non-profit organization with original intent set up to benefit organizations to which we were contributing. apples to oranges

Jason, thank you for you insight, however, I am quite knowledgable on how the concert industry works, and not all concerts are put on by for profit agencies. Believe me, we have been involved & offered our services, time & equipment to many "benefit" concerts & have never once asked to see tax documents afterwards to see how the money was divided up.
Also, I think that the statement that original intent of the Summit was to benefit other organizations rather than FJ owners & members of this forum is interesting. I certainly have not trailered audio equipment from Oklahoma to Ouray for the last 2 years in order to make sure that a child in Ouray receives a $500 scholarship. Maybe I was involved for the wrong reasons. If it were about charity to me, I would have saved my travel expenses & wrote a check to the local school in which my children are enrolled.

the idea was a healthy mix - benefit FJ owners while contributing to the community that supported us. I'll leave it to everyone else to decide if they think that healthy mix is being achieved

Re: Summit 2007/2008 accountability

Dragging the past and present Summit organizers through the mud over and over is getting quite ridiculous. I think far too many of the posters on this thread are splitting hairs. Can't you all just be happy that you aren't the one(s) faced with organizing this event every year ? Can't you all just be happy that we have a national event where we can get together, have a good time, meet good folks with the same interests (FJs), explore magnificent landscapes, and give something back to the community ?

PS, regardless whether the original intent was to benefit other organizations or not, it is necessary in order to ensure that we are welcomed in future years . . . and it is the right thing to do since we are almost taking over their great trail system for several days each summer.

Misty:

Nicely put.

I think I can speak for the FJSummit.org, and most of the attendees, about how much we appreciate your contribution to the event! Many may not realize the goodwill, hard work and personal expense you provide without asking for a thing. The REALLY professional sound system is a godsend!

Thanks again Misty!
